“We arrived for lunch and it immediately felt like going on a flash holiday. Two Kir Royals sparkled as lively as the canal’s quiet stream and set the tone for the afternoon. Blankets were handed just in case, but fortunately on this day they were not required. La Paniche’s menu felt like the type you’d find at a good bistro: concise but smartly chosen to cater to a variety of palates, and while they face the added challenge of very limited kitchen space, you wouldn’t notice it thanks to their skilled crew and a experienced chef that has captained the cooking team for a decade.”
